I Found An Abandoned Alice In Wonderland Mansion In New York

I stumbled upon this abandoned mansion in New York, and what I found inside was a fantasy world left behind. It was both bizarre and beautiful.

Everything from the color pallet, the toys, furniture, and wallpaper. It felt as If I myself fell into a hole, taking me through a land of fictional characters, except it wasn’t a dream.

The estate sits abandoned due to unfortunate circumstances involving the family, and the sadness can be felt all around.

I'm always curious to know the stories behind why amazing properties are abandoned in the blink of an eye - for decades

I am as well. It's such a shame. It looks like it must have been a beautiful house once. I hope some day it can be rescued and that the family's circumstances improve in whatever way they need to.

Why is the table set if you were abandoning a building would you go oh people might find this place latter for photos lets add some cutlery and the walls are purposely ripped I know the difference from seeing old houses and I know that it would not be pretty there would be more mold, spider webs, and the wall would not have only a couple of sections ripped. WHY IS THE BED MADE PERFECTLY AND THE DOLLS IN PERFECT POSITIONING. im sorry but THIS IS STAGED!!!

I also noticed the fairy tail pictures on the floor, the debris does not match. Cool pics but staged (or 'helped' at the very least).

There was an abandoned farmhouse like this me and my friends would explore as teenagers. Mail was piled up inside the door from decades ago. The place had been looted for valuables but still contained furniture, art on the walls, personal items, family photos, magazines from the 1920s-50s, personal collections of tchotchkes, and all sorts of cool stuff. I always wondered: What the hell happened to this family that they just up and left?

California sent all its Japanese to camps at race tracks, and to mountain areas in other States. I worked with a Japanese man whose family was sent to a mountain town; their home was looted, and their financial assets frozen. He was an attorney in a D.C. firm I worked for before leaving for CT. He was still bitter, and had never returned to CA. CT still had poverty areas in old port towns. I saw poverty in West Va. during a road trip from D.C. to adjacent States. There are poverty pockets throughout the U.S., small towns abandoned due to factory closures, some inner city areas where segregation trapped black people into poverty and lack of employment. There are pockets of poverty where I live in Butte County, CA. There are pockets of poverty in Silicon Valley, San Francisco, Boston, et al. We don't see the poor in those areas, because we don't shop there. Michelle Obama tried to give poor inner city kids at least one good meal a day at lunch.
